Some of Nashville’s favorite residents helped raise over $250,000 for Home Street Home Ministries during the second annual Miracle on 4th event.
Hosted by Thomas Rhett, Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Taylor Lewan and Nashville Predators captain Roman Josi, the event was aimed at raising funds for Nashville’s homeless community and presented by the #PIMPINJOY movement. It featured a special, acoustic performance of Florida Georgia Line’s “Blessings,” plus a silent auction and more.
“I just want you to know I appreciate what y’all do, and I want to do it with you,” FGL’s Tyler Hubbard said from the stage. “We’re all loved, and everybody needs to be told that more often. Thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts, and thank you for letting us to be a small part of this. Y’all keep doing what you’re doing, it’s inspiring to a lot of people.”
Celebrities who joined the cause included FGL’s Hubbard and Brian Kelley alongside their wives, Hayley and Brittney, as well as fellow country stars like Jason Aldean and wife Brittany, Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers and wife Abby, David Nail and wife Catherine and Chuck Wicks, plus radio and TV personality Bobby Bones, Amy Brown of The Bobby Bones Show and Nashville Predators Matt Duchene.
Proceeds went to directly benefit Nashville’s homeless community through Home Street Home Ministries. Founded by Steven Young – a tireless advocate who was given the help needed to pull himself out of homelessness a few short years ago – the organization is committed to meeting people where they are and helping however possible, delivering items critical to survival including tents, sleeping bags, propane tanks, water, hygiene products and medications.
